Back in the mid-1800s, a young Ole Habberstad immigrated from Norway, together with his parents and siblings, to Lanesboro. In 1892, after achieving success in the building materials business, he began construction on a stately Victorian home. His home is now the Scandinavian Inn, a bed and breakfast named for its Norse heritage. With his wide array of building materials to choose from, Ole saw to it that the home featured ornate Southern pine woodwork, multiple stained glass windows, hardwood floors, high ceilings, hot water radiator heat, transom windows, spacious grounds, and an inviting front porch. Still retaining all of its original charm, the Scandinavian Inn today includes additional guest rooms, air conditioning, several outdoor seating areas, and a picturesque rooftop gazebo, all of which preserve the original nineteenth century style and character both inside and out.
